DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The owner of the Miami Dolphins says the team will "make improvements" to its player interviewing practices, responding to the fallout from general manager Jeff Ireland asking former Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant whether his mother was ever a prostitute.

In a short statement Friday afternoon, owner Stephen Ross said Ireland "is well deserving of my continued confidence" and that he considers "the matter closed."

Ireland apologized to Bryant earlier this week after Yahoo! Sports reported that he posed the question several weeks ago during a pre-draft interview.
